Have a Walt Disney World Question?
Ask Dad

Do you have a question about Walt Disney World? Why not Ask Dad. Dad is a noted (at least by Dad) Walt Disney World expert and knows everything about the most magical place on earth. (And what he doesn't know he's real good at finding out.)

 

 

One thing I ask is that you check and see if I've already answered the question before. Here's a handy dandy search tool to give you a hand.

 

Search Dad's Sites

 

You can always leave me a question on the Facebook page.
